General DIY Building Sections

Use the navigation or search to find the building, DIY, home improvements, and gardening advice and tips you need. There is also lots of information on mortgages, finance, insurance, regulations, education and professional qualifications.

Spanish Español site

We have a new SPANISH (Español) language DIY building and gardens site coming up - we have some pages on already, with more to be added. This is very time consuming as these are professionally translated, and the site construction is very fiddly. So please be patient.

We are changing this site and launching new sites throughout 2010.
